Family Portraits A Trilogy of America 2003
Three narratives combine to create a shocking trilogy of modern American life, a portrait drawn with brushstrokes of hidden violence and disturbing cruelty. Directed by Douglas Buck, this unflinching film reveals what lies behind the drawn curtains of so-called "ordinary" households.

A desperate housewife, a troubled father and a crippled disfigured teenage girl journey into self-mutilation, murder, and the pits of despair in three chapters. In "Cutting Moments" (1997), a troubled family descends into incest and murder. "Home" (1998) acts as a follow-up to the previous film, and "Prologue" (2003) tells the tale of a young teenage girl, brutally attacked just one year before, returning to her hometown where she will confront her attacker.

Douglas Buck has an uncanny way of getting under the skin of the the viewer with his sordid tales of both small town and suburban life, he does so with a sparse style that peels away the shiny veneer to expose the rotten underside.
